Juniperus chinensis 'Stricta' is a small, compact, coniferous, evergreen shrub of narrowly pyramidal habit, with a peeling bark, tight, ascending branches, sprays of aromatic, soft, blue-green leaves, and small berry-like seed cones known as juniper berries. Juniperus chinensis 'Stricta' can adapt to a wide range of soils, including clay and poor ones, but is best grown in average, loose, medium moisture, well-drained soils. It prefers sunny positions, but can adapt to some shade. It thrives in cool weather and can tolerate heat. Once established, tolerant of drought. Very resistant to frost, low temperatures, and exposed positions. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Chinese Juniper 'Stricta' is stunning, ornamental tree, perfect as a specimen or accent plant in small gardens and narrow spaces. It resembles Italian Cypress but is much stronger and hardy. It is great for foundation plantings and hedging and screens. Good for a windbreak. Suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
